BUILDING PATHWAYS FOR THE UNDERESTIMATED INVESTOR & FOUNDER

NOTHING IS STRONGER THAN A COMMUNITY THAT INVESTS IN ITSELF

We are mobilizing a new brand of investors and founders from communities that are traditionally overlooked. The HBCUvc Investor and Founder is mission-driven, authentic, rooted in community, and builds and invests for a bold future.

We support our community of emerging investors and founders by providing:

  • Micro investments (equity-free)

  • Mentorship, peer communities, and leadership development

  • Culturally-affirming curriculum

  • Access to paid internships in venture capital and technology companies

We Invest in People, Not Companies. We Believe Culture Adds Value and that the Boldest Innovations Originate in the Margins.
